New Ads Funded by Big Oil Portray Global Warming Science as Smear Campaign Against Carbon Dioxide

A front group for Big Oil is putting out ads denying the reality of global warming, in a pre-emptive bid to undermine Al Gore’s new doc­u­men­tary, An In­con­ve­nient Truth.

The first ad portrays global warming science as a vicious smear campaign against carbon dioxide. The ad, which despite ap­pear­ances is not an SNL parody, helpfully reminds us that carbon dioxide is “essential to life” because “we breath[e] it out.”

"An In­con­ve­nient Truth" opens in Seattle on June 2nd, 2006.
